Microsoft Word, which is what I was using as my word processor when I wrote
the book, does this, too, but you have to jump through so many hoops that
it's tremendously simpler to do it manually. Besides which, of coure, a
manual index is more flexible and more likely to be accurate and usefeul
than any non-intellilgent indexing software (and probably even intelligent
indexing software).
